The only way I could resolve that was to swap cables, but it presents 
another issue, the main monitor is on the left and is the default 
regardless of settings.
For me this is a problem because left is a small screen the the main 
work screen is a very large display. I learned to live with it, grudgingly.

It applies to all types and styles of Linux.
